RAM slot doesn't work

I have a X58 PRO-E MSI motherboard running on three sticks of Corsair
XMS3 RAM sticks. Recently I noticed that only 4Gb out of the 6Gb of RAM
show up in the system properties. At first, I thought the problem had to
do with the PC's configuration or a bad RAM stick, but when I tried
interchanging the sticks I found out that they all worked fine. The real
culprit was the first RAM slot on the motherboard. Is there a way I
could fix this?

Thanks a lot for the help!

By the way, my PC is running on Win 7 - 64bit, so 6Gb should be
compatible.
